I would not recommend seeing Anika Wilson for psychiatry. She was not personable, cold, uncaring and showEd no interest in my needs and concerns at hand. I saw her for three years on the account of convenience with my relocation to hsv. Every appointment was less than 20 mins and my last time in her office she asked me how many sister I had....Again.... after three years. The office staff was rude and Annika pushed me into feeling like I had no control over MY mental health.

Horrible practice, won’t return calls, very rude on the phone, like you’re putting them off. I posted something similar on google and they kicked me out the practice the next morning.

Rudest office staff I have ever encountered at a doctor's office. Poor service and lack of compassion. I cried when I left their office because of the way they treated me and my child.

Their office staff is rude and the practice will try to bleed you dry. They gave me mis-dated appointment cards TWICE while also not sending me appointment confirmation texts, then insisted I pay $130 or I couldn’t see the dr for my maintenance medications. They do not care about your wellbeing, avoid at all costs.

Our first appointment with Dr. Wilson I was not super pleased. She did not smile once the whole time. She was not friendly. I think maybe she was just having a bad day because since then, she’s been nicer. She isn’t a super warm and friendly type person but she does a good job prescribing meds for my son. I would prefer someone more personable, but there is a huge shortage oof child psychiatrists in the area!

Dr Wilson is knowledgeable, thorough, and creative with finding solutions and the correct mix of medications to treat my elementary school aged autistic child. She clearly explains pros and cons and offers options to me in deciding how to treat my child. She listens to how my child is responding to meds day to day and also offers suggestions for non-medication interventions. Our appointments never feel rushed. I can highly recommend Dr. Wilson.

Dr. Wilson has been a life saver! Having a daughter with severe anxiety and mood imbalances, I can't say enough about how she has helped my daughter. She listens to her and takes her feelings into consideration during their appointments.

I have been seeing Dr. Wilson for quite sometime and she is always friendly and invested in my treatment and how I am doing. She goes above and beyond to further my success and I couldn't do this without her. The office staff is friendly and always works with my hectic schedule to find me an appointment that is convenient for me.

The most bizarre doctor visit in my life! I brought in my daughter for ADD challenges for FIRST visit. Her receptionist was very kind. Dr Wilson however, didn't exhibit basic social skills (courtesies such as an introduction, hello, or goodbye). Didn't ask anything about our family dynamic. She seemed extremely irritated and condescending. Never smiled during the entire visit. Not at all personable. If you need help, how are you supposed to trust her sour personality? She needs help! Run away!

She doesnt talk much. I dont feel like she really heard me at all. I spent 25 of 60 minutes in her office. Very hard to get appoibtments in time to refil your meds. I am an adult and my insurance referred me to her. Maybe she just does better with children. Her eduation certificates are very impressive but thats anout it.

She may be a good fit some some kids, but comparing her with other child psychiatrists we've been to, I don't recommend her for boys with ADHD and/or anxiety. Especially if the parents also have those same issues. We took my son to her several times over a period of about 1 1/2 years (2011 or 2012) before APS closed. Never got the feeling that she understood him or our family situation. At times, she seemed judgemental and even annoyed with us if we were not able to follow a suggestion.

Dr. Wilson has been absolutely great in assisting my daughter and I with long term depression. She has a great intuitiveness and have us both on a high level of being productive. I am always amazed at her schedule is always on time and don't have you waiting forever in the waiting room. I would highly recommend Dr. Wilson!
